Morgan Evans is taking over US99

Morgan Evans at US*99 First Listen Saturday night AND more Morgan Friday afternoon!!!!!

October 11, 2018

We're about to have a Morgan Evans filled weekend and we wouldn't have it any other way!!

The United States got it's first (awesome) introduction to Morgan Evans when he released "Kiss Somebody" last year. It was the Australian's first single to be released in the U.S. AND went on to become his first No.1 song in America! 

He's back again with another song we LOVE (also, it's kinda our anthem) called "Day Drunk."

If you've also been on his YouTube page (or saw him when he last stopped by the US*99 studios!) you know how incredibly talented he is! One of his most impressive talents is one he developed out of necessity... when he first began performing in America, he couldn't bring his entire band with him, so he had to figure out how to get the sound of a full band on his own. Enter loop pedal. If you haven't seen him perform with it, it's TRULY mesmerizing. He also did some amazing mashups on his channel using the trick & it really is one of our favorite things to watch and listen to...

You may have also noticed a familiar face above in his tweets and throughout his "Day Drunk" music video... his wife Kelsea Ballerini! P.S. -- they shot that video themselves & we have to say it takes it to a whole other level! 

Morgan Evans will be our Facebook Friday artist takeover on October 12th which happens to be his ALBUM RELEASE DAY!!!!! for "Things That We Drink To," and it will also be a day before he takes the Joe's Live stage for US*99's First Listen! Of course we're going to use the show to celebrate the release of his new project! You can still be there with us by getting his new album through HERE & you'll get a free ticket into the show!
